John Newton Frazier, the twin to the Andrew Jackson that is living with John Ruddell in 1850, is my gg grandfather. I have been trying for YEARS to find any of their father, Martin Gaines Frazier's, family. We have always wondered why he left his kids with the various people that he did. Then I found a message on a board from a Jim Fleming that states:
I am looking for information on John Ruddell who fought in the Texas Revolution. He is a distant grandfather. I am desperately trying to find his grave. He IS NOT buried in McMahan cemetery or any other cemetery in Sabine or San Augustine counties. Would also like to know who his parents were/where they came from. I know that John was borned in Louisiana and his wife Margaret was borned in Tennessee. Her maiden name was FRAZIER. Any info would be appreciated.
I replied to this message but Jim has yet to respond so I went looking for other messages that some of Ruddell's family had left hoping that they might give me more information and that is how I found you. I am really bummed out now. What do you make of Jim's message? Have you done enough research and know enough information on this family to safely rule out the possibility that there is a family connection here?
Thanks so much for responding so quickly. Look forward to your next reply.
